How to use the Skin Clarifying Kit:

Step 1: Cleanse 

Clear Skin Anti Blemish Cleanser

Removing the grime of the day is important for keeping buildup that causes acne at bay. The Anti Blemish Face Wash contains Salicylic Acid to go deep into the pores to clear them from excess oil and dirt

It effectively removes make-up and debris without stripping your skin and contains soothing ingredients to avoid any irritation. Use it as a body wash for all over acne treatment if you’re also struggling with bacne or chestne.

Step 2 : Treat

Retinol / Vitamin A for blemishes:

Retinol is one of the most researched skincare ingredients, and the research says - it works wonders for reducing breakouts! Retinol helps limit key factors of what causes blemishes. It does this by increasing skin cell turnover, regulating oil production and reducing the chance of blocked pores. Bonus that it also improves skin texture, tone and is a fantastic anti-ageing ingredient. If you’re wary of using retinol, start slowly. Once a week until you see no side-effects, then increase to twice a week and repeat until you can use it as often as desired. Read up on all you need to know about retinol before starting to get yourself clued up on this wondrous ingredient.

Step 3: Hydrate

Hydrated skin is healthy skin and healthy skin is better able to heal and fight breakouts, so definitely don’t skip this vital step. Even oily skin needs hydration. A common misconception with oily skin is that moisturiser isn't necessary and will make the skin even greasier. Not so, by not applying moisturiser, you're causing the skin to overcompensate and produce more oil.

The Deep Hydration Moisture Cream helps support the skin’s healing ability, ensuring skin is hydrated and protected and strong.

The best skincare routine for acne

The important thing to remember in order to see results from Retinol and Salicylic Acid is consistency. Commit to the routine everyday, not just when you see breakouts erupting. And remember, Retinol takes longer to work than most ingredients so expect to see smoother, more clarified skin in around 2 months. Don’t give up if you’re having trouble, see our post on why people don’t see results with retinol here - ‘How to get Retinol to work for your skin’.
